Natural gas, coal, and oil are non-renewable sources of energy. Our generating portfolio includes power stations fueled by these resources. Advanced technologies, training, and a dedicated workforce are the keys to being a pacesetter in this type of generation.

Our power stations use a variety of techniques to reduce harmful emissions, including electrostatic precipitators, wet scrubbers and selective catalytic reduction technology.

CFB Technology – Advanced circulating fluidized bed technology is proven clean-coal technology that also enables the using of run-of-mine coal, waste coal and renewable energy sources, such as wood waste. CFB technology combined with modern post-combustion controls has low emissions of sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxide, particulate matter and mercury. This technology is compatible with the need to be able to use a wide variety of fuels available in the region and compatible with the requirement to construct and operate a facility in an environmentally responsible manner that minimizes overall impact to air, water and land resources.
